Ways to use leftover pork?

I made a 3 lb roast for two. How do you use your leftovers?

Leftover pork is one thing that I'm not a huge fan of. I do like hot pork sandwiches and I like to make a pork pot pie with broccoli in it. Chop suey is another option.

I put it in spaghetti sauce and simmer on low for a couple hours. It adds a nice flavor to the sauce.

Pork BBQ on a bun...stir fry with rice...or just freeze a portion enough to make a dish for two later.

Cut thin slices into strips and marinate in stir fry sauce.

Saute carrot sticks, green onions,red pepper strips, sliced mushrooms etc.

Cook some angel hair pasta til al dente.

Add pasta and pork to veg and stir together til pork is heated through.

Serve sprinkled with cilantro and chopped peanuts.

I like a really good pork sandwich, on rye, and sliced dill pickles and cayenne pepper hot sauce with mayo........YUM{#emotions_dlg.tt1} My mom would fix these for me sometimes and bring me one to the hospital (where I worked), and everyone would try to steal it{#emotions_dlg.w00t} The pork fried rice is a good idea as well........Or a good cuban cooked panini styleCool

If you have a Costco nearby, there's a coupon for $3 off a Pork Loin Roast or Chops. Starts 1/5.

I would add it to a pot of vegetable soup.

I have about half of a 4.5-pound pork loin roast left over, and I plan to slow-simmer it in my crockpot for a few hours with sauerkraut, chopped apple, chopped onion, brown sugar, and celery or caraway seeds. I'll serve it with boiled, herbed red potatoes, hot brown bread/butter, and ice-cold beer. Oh, my!

Another good thing is to slice or chunk some of the pork and reheat it in the oven with BBQ sauce, then put it on sandwich buns and toast them in a sandwich grill. A little coleslaw, some baked beans, chips, or fries, and a dill pickle or two, and you have a delicious BBQ dinner.

Leftover pork is also good in Asian stir-fry dishes.

I am so proud of using up my leftovers when in the past we would use a little, then end up pitching the remainer.

Last night my hubby used stir fry chow mein veggies, and used in place of chicken, and really good. Today I shreded the remainer of pork, added barbecue sauce ketchup, onion, carrots, and a little water, and cooked on the top of stove for a while, until really tender. I put pork in kolbassi type buns, and served with cottage cheese, and lemonade for lunch.
